This was the first time that we have booked in a Travelodge but was more than expected for the 5 nights we have spent in Edinburgh. The place was clean and in a quiet area not very far from Princess Street which is the main shopping area. I would recommend this place as it is value for money.

Having previously enjoyed many a stay at the Green's Hotel, I was dissappointed to learn that it had closed down and had been bought over by the Travelodge chain. Desperate for accommodation on a visit to the Edinburgh Tattoo this year, we booked two rooms in the new Travelodge. What a let down! There is absolutely no atmosphere at all... More

Went on a 6 girl hen weekend in 2006 and stayed here. There were three single beds in our room and it was truly lovely, there was tons of room, our huge sash windows overlooked a lovely manicured garden, it was very light and airy, the decor was quite traditional so minimalists beware as it could be a bit too...

Nice hotel - Georgian style. We were upgraded to a family room (and so was our friend - it was huge), but unfortunately had no shower, just a bath. The breakfast is delicious and we weren't charged any extra to have it in the room. Clean and spacious rooms, close to Princes Street, friendly staff.

My partner and I booked a 3 night stay at the Greens Hotel, although slightly worried about the previous reviews we went along and were treated. For the minute price we payed the hotel was amazing. Our room was spacious and very clean. The staff were friendly and the food was great. The only thing I can complain about is... More

We were due to stay at the hotel for one night. I phoned ahead 2 days before and the booking was confirmed. We arrived on the morning and were told that our room wasnt ready but we could leave our bags and return later. We returned late afternoon to be told that they didnt have a room for us. 3... More

This was a fine hotel. My friend and I stayed there for a couple of nights recently and found it hard to fault. Good value, good location, lovely building, nice room, friendly service. Only small quibble would be the fact that breakfast is only served till 9:30am on weekdays (10am at weekends), which meant we missed out both mornings on... More

When I arrived, the hotel had no record of my booking. Fortunately I had evidence that I had pre-paid so they were obliged to rehome me - not easy on a Friday evening. I ended up in a pleasant guest house down the road, which judging by other reviews of Greens on this site, was possibly a better option. From... More

The hotel although a bit scruffy around the edges, the room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was not so nice. There was hairs visible on the bathroom floor along side the bath from the previous occupant. I had dinner in the restaurant, but upon pouring the first glass of water from the jug there was debris in my glass.... More

Staying in West End

Neighborhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theaters and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
